    There was a knock at the door. It was past midnight, and Judy was suspicious. Who could be visiting at this hour? She turned off the light. Maybe they won’t notice I’m home, she thought.

    “Hey, cool ride”, said Jerry. He was jealous but didn’t want his buddy to know it. He was saving up for his own car and had several months to go. If only I could afford a car like that, he thought.

    Just up ahead was a sign. “No outlet”. “Well, that’s just great,” said Tony.
    “Story of my friggin’ life.” He turned to look where he had come. He had a decision to make.

    “Incoming!” Sergeant Davis screamed. The squad braced for impact. It landed a half a click away. “They’re going to destroy us if we don’t take out that pillbox!” Corporal Norton had an idea.

    Private Johnson stood at attention listening to his sergeant’s rant. His mind was a million miles away, so he didn’t hear it when the sarge dismissed him. Just another day as a grunt. Semper fi.

    I had brunch with Karen yesterday. She was late as usual. She sat down, ordered a mimosa, complained about parking, and proceeded to spend the next 10 minutes on her cell phone talking to someone else. Why do I […]

    Pushing harder each time, Mike sent his daughter Ariel flying in the swing. “Wheeeeeee!” she cried gleefully. “Higher, Daddy, higher!” To the stars and beyond, thought Mike.

  • He was a professional. No job was too dirty. This will be a piece of cake, he thought. The house is vacant except for the victim. neighbors are out. No time to waste. He loaded his .38 and pushed the door open.

    No sweat, he thought. I can clear that fence easy. The pit bull closed the distance as he gathered his strength, took a couple of running steps and leaped with all his might. Snarling dog and gnashing teeth close […]

    She ran a brush through her hair thoughtfully. This weave doesn’t look real at all, she decided. I gotta go back to that stylist and demand my money back. I wonder if she’s still there in her van?

    James picked up the lantern from the barn floor. Peering out into the moonlight, he searched for his lost cow. That’s the last time I’m buying feed from Old Man Ferguson, he thought. Damn cow’s gone looking for […]

  • Rick Colby commented on the post, crew 7 years, 1 month ago

    The barber pulled out the big shears. Timmy stared at them, not quite sure if he really wanted a crew cut after all. He gulped hard, preparing to say goodbye to his long locks. Okay, he thought. Go for it. It’s only hair.

    The crew of the vessel watched in horror as the sea monster rose before them. It’s got to be 100 feet tall, Jacob thought. What do we do now? Besides run? We can’t outrun it. We’re doomed.

  • Rick Colby commented on the post, generator 7 years, 1 month ago

    The generator was making noise again. It always did this when Jim had a girl over. Why couldn’t it just go smoothly? He needed this now? Maybe she won’t notice. Jennifer looked at him oddly. Yep. She noticed.
